Friends of Lakeland

We are excited to invite EVERYONE to join the “Friends of Lakeland” group. The purpose of this group is to SUPPORT the students and staff of Lakeland through the PTO. All community members are encouraged to join with us in supporting our school this year. The PTO will have a “Friends of Lakeland” sign-up table at the OPEN HOUSE! If you feel as though you’d like to make a donation to the PTO, we will be accepting donations at that time. All donations will go to fund school supplies, field trips, educational tools for students and staff as well as meeting many other needs within the school as they arise throughout the year.
